Dental Fillings East Hanover, NJ

Dental FillingsAn Overview

Dental fillings are one of the most common dental treatments designed to restore damaged teeth and protect them from future problems. Dr. Raj Upadya of the Metropolitan Center for Complete Dentistry in East Hanover Park, NJ strives to achieve natural looking, long lasting results. For dental fillings, Dr. Upadya uses tooth colored materials. Depending on your specific condition, he may choose tooth-colored resin or porcelain.

Tooth colored dental fillings are the standard in modern dentistry. They provide long term strength and durability with a virtually invisible appearance. Both dental resin and porcelain come in a range of tooth-colored shades for a perfect match.

Dr. Upadya offers same day dentistry with the use of E4D technology which enables him to design, fabricate and place a porcelain dental filling in a single visit.

Dental Fillings What to Expect

Depending on the progression, size, and location of your dental carry, Dr. Upadya may recommend one of several types of dental fillings. The patients cosmetic goals and long term oral health needs will both be considered when choosing the type of dental filling. Dental fillings are a routine procedure that are typically completed in a single visit to our East Hanover dental office.

  • Resin Dental Fillings
    “White” fillings, are made from a biocompatible composite resin which is applied directly to the tooth. Dr. Upadya typically uses resin dental fillings for patients with minor tooth decay or damage. Resin dental fillings are long lasting, but not permanent. They are used as part of a conservative treatment plan to protect the tooth from future damage.
  • Porcelain Dental Fillings
    Categorized as either dental inlays or dental onlays, porcelain dental fillings are used for patients with more significant decay or damage to the tooth. The porcelain dental fillings adds additional strength to the tooth. These types of dental fillings are permanently bonded to the tooth and typically last for many years with proper care.
  • Drill-less Filings for White Spots & Early Cavity Treatment
    Dr. Upadya is excited to be one of the first New Jersey dentists to offer the Icon Drill-less filling technology. The Icon treatment is ideal for patients who are in the early stages of teeth decay and/or have white spots on their teeth.
    With the Icon technology, Dr. Upadya can stop the progression of an early cavity without using a drill or needle. This revolutionary treatment preserves healthy tooth structure and extends the life expectancy of the natural tooth.

Dental Fillings FAQs

Do you replace old metal fillings?

Yes, Dr. Upadya replaces old amalgam fillings with white fillings for a more comfortable and natural looking restoration. Modern advances in cosmetic dentistry mean that you no longer need to suffer from unsightly and uncomfortable silver/mercury fillings or metal margins around the gum line. If the tooth’s structure has been compromised, it may be best to restore it with a dental crown which will cover the tooth like a cap.

What do I do if I have a lost or broken dental filling?

If you have lost or have a broken dental filling, it is important to contact our office as quickly as possible. We strive to provide you with prompt attention to repair the damaged tooth and restore your dental filling as quickly as possible.
